Bob Geldof released a statement earlier today on behalf of the Geldof family to express their deep sorrow at the news.
?Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing ?was? destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is. Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof.?
A prolific Tweeter, Peaches? last tweet from yesterday read simply ?Me and my mum? and showed a picture of her with her mother Paula Yates (pictured above). Paula too passed away when Peaches was only 11, at the age of 41. Like Peaches, she had been a dedicated mother in the months that preceded her death.
Our thoughts are with the family.
